About Me:

I'm a New York-based writer and reporter with over a decade of experience. I'm currently a senior editor and business reporter for three b2b publications: Nation's Restaurant News, Restaurant Hospitality, and Supermarket News. I report on some of the biggest companies in the world and cover the trends that impact the restaurant and grocery industries. I also manage and mentor junior reporters and conceptualize and edit various sections and special issues of Nation's Restaurant News magazine. 

In previous positions, I've launched websites, like Quartz, and worked in editorial-ish roles at tech companies, like Facebook, Apple and Uncubed. My writing has also appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Eater, Entrepreneur Magazine, Businessweek Magazine and other publications.

I also launched and currently manage the website and communications for my family's event rental business, Please B Seated. (Getting married or throwing a huge party? Stop by our site.)

I earned my master's degree from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, where I concentrated on digital journalism and interned at the social media desk of the New York Times. I received my BFA from the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, where I studied photography and art history and interned at Vanity Fair.
